Projects / MP3 STATION


MP3 STATION is a LIRC-aware, plain-text tool set for managing MP3 playback in a car or home with as little user interaction as possible. It can restart the last playlist at the last played track/frame, transparently load directories, transparently recompile playlists, and keep a repository of all the playlists. It also has two simple clients for communicating with cm3s (a curses console client and a very basic one on a parallel port). All programs run under a non-privileged user account.

            alpha release candidate
            If all goes well I'll soon be in RC1 for this alpha release.
            And once that is gone into definitive alpha release I'll concentrate on making the package fully functional on other platforms (alltough I do not expect anyone to be using a sparc station in their car !)

            Bye to you all
